QURINDI: The name Quirindi is derived from the Kamilaroi Aboriginal language, and means 'nest in the hills'
When visiting Quirindi there are plenty of places to see. The Who'd-a-thought-it Lookout will allow the visitor to get the town into perspective and to view the surrounding countryside with its almost 360 degree panorama.
In Station Street you will find the Historical Cottage and Museum which started its life as a shop before beming the home of an early local paper, The Magpie. The museum displays a variety of items from Quirindi's past. The Rural Heritage Village can be found on the Gunnedah Road, 3 kilometres from town. It has a large display of historic information and memorabilia.
The town clock was erected as a memorial to the first world war and in the vicinity are a number of historic buildings, still in use in the business sector of the town.
